Building Cooperative Behaviors: A Free Introduction to Behavior Analysis

Building Cooperative Behaviors: A Free Introduction to Behavior Analysis

Building Cooperative Behaviors: A Free Introduction to Behavior Analysis

Jeff Kupfer, PhD, Board Certified Behavior Analyst

In order to build cooperative behaviors in others, we must learn to change our own behavior patterns and practices. This class provides a brief overview of selected evidence-based behavior principles based on Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA). We will review the dangers of using coercive and punitive methods to change behavior, and will focus on positive alternatives.

Parents, Caregivers, Professionals, Educators/Teachers and Community Members will learn to use Cooperative Behavior Building methods for behavior change by:

  • Recognizing and understanding the five principles of behavior to enhance relationships

  • Distinguishing between proactive and reactive methods and how these two approaches result in diverse outcomes

  • Drawing upon Cooperative Behavior Building methods to increase positive behaviors and decrease challenging or problematic behaviors

Classes are free and open to the public

Class are held at the John Taylor Conference Center at 1665 Coal Creek Drive in Lafayette
9:00AM-1PM / Registration begins at 8:30AM
